Current track access applications
This section contains the latest documents relating to track access applications we are currently considering. This may include application forms, draft agreements, any related documents and responses we make public. We include track access applications on:
- New contracts sections 17 and 18
- Amendments to contracts (section 22 and 22A)
For older applications please see the archive. Once we've made a decision, these documents will be removed from this section and relevant documents will be published in the track access decisions section.
In line with the Industry code of practice (see Annex A of our criteria and procedures document), Network Rail is responsible for consulting on most proposed new contracts and amendments. Accordingly, please check Network Rail's consultation web pages as well as our own when looking for details of current consultations.
